, there were all sorts of expectations that mahmoud ahmadinejad would go after the bang at the u.n. this week. after all, his final address as president of iran, but he didn't, at least not at the u.n., saving most of his rhetoric for media interviews. ahmadinejad was relatively tamed compared to earlier years. he was insistent that his nation was committed to peace. jim walsh, an expert at international security at mit joins me now and, jim, what was your take on this speech? >> well, deb, i think you're right. i expected, as happens every year, ahmadinejad, well, i expect many different ahmadinejads. i expect the ones that has meetings like the two meetings i attended is kindler and gentler and the one that speaks in front of the general assembly is fiery to speak to that audience back home in iran or send the message to the world and didn't happen. he was pretty tame all throughout. i think what we were getting was a message of, we're reasonable and we're willing to talk and that sort of sets the stage for what will happen the u.s. election and early next year. >> you know, jim, ahmadineja
dramatic speech at the u.n. he had a drawing and a red line and said if iran amasses that amount of enriched uranium which would be number to make a bomb we have to strike. would you and governor romney put the redline at the same place that netanyahu did. >> what we have said is a nuclear weapons capability is what we have to stop. we have to speak with credibility. that means a romney/ryan administration one of credibility where we don't establish daylight between our allies, especially israel. when we say what we are going to do it is believed. that is the issue here. the ayatollahs by virtue of the conduct don't believe the president. >> chris: but your red line is not any different than the president. >> the problem is it is built upon a million of noncredible actions. i have been in congress for a number of years and we he have been fighting for tough crippling sanctions on iran. the administration resisted us. tim geithner tried to stop us from doin doing this until overwhelming support when the administration came onboard. when we send the signals overseas the ayatollahs
and a difference, netanyahu, the israeli prime minister gave a dramatic speech at the u.n. and had a drawing of a bomb and drew a red line. >> saw that. >> chris: and said if iran amasses that amount of medium enriched uranium, enough to make a bomb, we have to strike. would you and governor romney put the red line the same place, that benjamin netanyahu did. >> what mitt romney and i said, is a nuclear weapons capability is what we have to stop. now, we have to stick with credibility. that means, a romney-ryan administration will be one of credibility and we don't establish daylight between the allies, especially israeli and say what we'll do, it is believed. that is the issue here. the ayatollahs, by virtue of their conduct, don't believe the president when he says his interest is in stopping -- >> but, you wouldn't put the red line anyplace different -- >> the president moved his rhetoric a bit to look more like ours and that is good but the problem is, it is built upon a mountain of non credible action. i have been in congress a number of years and we have been fighting for tough sanctio
minister of israel literally drew a red line for iran's nuclear program today as he addressed the u.n. general assembly. see him there? and he paused for effect. now, look at that rather crudely drawn bomb. this was no colin powell moment. there was a purposefully simple diagram, kind of like a cartoon, designed to make what benjamin netanyahu believes is a very serious, but simple point. >> by next spring at most, by next summer, at current enrichment rates, they will be finished with medium enrichment and move on to the final stage. from there, it's only a few months, possibly a few weeks, before they get enough enriched uranium for the fist bomb. >> but in his speech this week, president obama did not give any such timeline. he certainly didn't draw a red line. >> so let me be clear, america warrants to revolve this issue through diplomacy and we believe there is still time and space to do so. but that time is not unlimited. >> netanyahu thanked the president for tough sanctions, but was clear to say those sanctions have not impacted the country's nuclear program, but did he give a
. then the explanations began to shift a little bit. susan rice the u.n. ambassador said it started as a demonstration about that video, and then involved other elements, who joined spontaneously. it's been shifting ever since. the president initially called it an act of terror. he has not done so since then but his spokesman has said since then that it is obviously self-evidently an act of terror, and now this statement from the spokesman for the director of national intelligence, who says in part, we do assess that some of those involved were linked to groups affiliated with, or sympathetic to, al qaeda. >> can i ask you, susan rice, she's under fire from peter king. of course he's a republican congressman. he's been calling for her resignation, saying she hasn't been forthcoming with the truth. so what does the white house say about that? >> they did put out a spokesman in defense of ambassador -- statement in defense of ambassador susan rice yesterday. it stems from a couple of sundays ago. she was on some of the sunday shows, including "meet the press" where she gave that explanation that this pr
that killed our ambassador, chris stevens and others on the ground. on september 16th, the u.n. ambassador for this administration came on this program and this is how she described whether or not this was a deliberate act, a terrorist attack. this is what sizen wright said at that time. >> let me tell you best information we have at present. first of all, there's an fbi investigation which is ongoing and we look to that investigation to give us the definitive word as to what transpired. but putting together the best information that we have available to us today, our current assessment is that what happened in benghazi was in fact initially a spontaneous reaction to what had just transpired hours before in cairo. almost a copycat of the demonstrations against our facility in cairo. which were prompted of course by the video. >> there's a caveat there, she said the fbi was still investigating. but the thought was it was a spontaneous reaction. a couple of days before that the libyan president said al qaeda was behind the attack. and days later, the president's spokesman, jay carney says th
, to resign as u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and yesterday, here's the response as they try and move forward and turn the majpage. congressman paul ryan and paul mccain. take a look at this approach. >> the response was slow. it was confused. it was inconsistent. they first said that it was a youtube video and a spontaneous mob. we now know that it was a planned terrorist attack. if this was one tragic incident, that would be a tragedy in and of itself. the problem is it's part of a bigger picture of the fact that the obama foreign policy is unraveling literally before our eyes on our tv screens. >> i think it interferes with the depiction that the administration is trying to convey, that al qaeda is on the wane, that everything's fine in the middle east. >> you think it's political? >> i think there are certain political overtones. how else could you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say it was spontaneous? >> maybe it was. >> five days later? that doesn't pass the smell test. it was ever ignorance or willful intelligence. >> whether you agree with him or not, senator mccain has the credibili
/7, but apparently not during u.n. meetings. as "the new york post" highlighted here, the question about whether there was a snub not meeting with the israeli leader, e president is on "the view" just as u.n. world leaders are meeting. that was the headline of "the new york post" with their own point of view there. but is this -- is he not performing all of the critical roles of the presidency, particularly with the foreign policy crisis? with so many questions about management of the middle east, when you have a key united nations gathering, not to meet with world leaders, including netanyahu at a time of so much concern over iran? >> this president has been obviously in constant contact throughout the four years with world leaders. he's obviously been in deep consultation with prime minister netanyahu. obviously our administration has been in deep consultation with the defense and intelligence agencies in israel. so this president has been very, very focused on strengthens our alliances. he's built an unprecedented global effort in terms of sanctions against iran. so this president has led, an
obama and governor romney by phone. yesterday the prime minister made this impassioned plea before the u.n. general assembly to stop iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon. that's a chart he used to set his red line to where iran's nuclear program must absolutely be stopped. this country was built by working people. the economy needs manufacturing. machines, tools, people making stuff. companies have to invest in making things. infrastructure, construction, production. we need it now more than ever. chevron's putting more than $8 billion dollars back in the u.s. economy this year. in pipes, cement, steel, jobs, energy. we need to get the wheels turning. i'm proud of that. making real things... for real. ...that make a real difference. ♪ wthe future of our medicare andr electiosocial security. for... a real difference. man 1: i want facts. straight talk. tell me your plan... and what it means for me. woman 2: i'm tired of the negative ads and political spin. that won't help me decide. man 2: i earned my medicare and social security. and i deserve some answers. anncr: where do the candidate
, but it's not nearly what most americans think it is. >> and as a matter of fact, while he was at the u.n., he was told that one of his top aides indeed was arrested for making a comment that apparently insultdinsultd -- insulted the supreme leader. he called for a red line saying that diplomacy hasn't done anything to stop it. sanctions not so much. even though they are proving effective. at one point, benjamin netanyahu really drew a red line, his own red line. take a look. >> here are the facts. where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. before -- before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> what is really so fascinating about this is that the iran supreme leader has not yet made the decision whether or not to build any sort of an atomic weapon, but clearly that is what everybody in that region is worried about. are we looking at a targeted military strike, another war, if, in fact, iran does go over that 90% mark that netanyahu is talking about? >> well, i think you're right to say if they were suddenly to anno
in aleppo burned this market, this is part of the u.n. world heritage site. rebels say they are fighting a decisive battle for the city. >>> and investigators at a detroit area, yesterday, acting on a claim that a man saw a body buried there around the same time that jimmy hoffa disappeared. by the way, 37 years ago that was, they dug up soil samples, and their first impression, not encouraging. >> we took two separate samples, all the samples basically just looked like murky, muddy earth. because of that, there is really no discernible remains visible. >> and police will check the soil samples anyway. we should know on monday what the analysis turns up, we'll let you know. >>> and jimmy hoffa's disappearance is still an open case. and every few years, a new clue comes up that re-energyizes the search, and the legend actually grows with time. more on the story. >> reporter: jimmy hoffa, the mafia-backed union leader in the era of robert kennedy. played in the movie, hoffa by jack nicholson. >> and my brother elected president -- >> but in 1975. hoffa disappeared, an american anti-hero wa
, msnbc special correspondent, tom brokaw. you have seen a lot of u.n. speeches. >> jon stewart teed it up saying it looks like a wiley coyote cartoon. this is a serious issue. seems the way the prime minister presented it before the united nations. >> had an american president did something like this, what would the reaction be? i am sort of shell shocked. >> take the two candidates, think about what they would have said if president obama had done something like that. >> george w. bush. >> from the right or george w. bush, or if mitt romney made a speech and held up that kind of a bomb and drew the line. it boggles the mind. these are serious issues. they are complex. the country and the world deserves to know exactly where we are in the process and where we're going to get to. >> i know that particularly netanyahu always savvy about the american media. this was clearly designed so that more of us would cover this. it was an and t-- antic. >> i think probably benjamin netanyahu's standing with important leaders is pretty well fixed, i don't think it moves it one way or another. he is a h
. the calls follow prime minister netanyahu's u.n. speech yesterday, of course, where he dramatically drew that red line for stopping iran's nuclear program. up next right here, the rnc cutting ties with a consulting firm that's under investigation for voter fraud. nbc's national investigative correspondent michael isakoff has details on that. first, billionaire announcing a major donation to the pro-obama super-pac. it's one of the things we thought you should know. first, after a week of complaints from frustrated iphone users, apple's ceo tim cook now apologizing over the new maps app. he said the new maps application fell short of his commitment to make the best products for customers. last week apple's new operating system replaced google maps with apple's own application. users explained that the new software mislabeled cities, moved some landmarks, didn't provide transit directions. cook said that apple is working nonstop to improve that app. ask me what it's like when my tempur-pedic moves.

is calling on the u.n. ambassador to the united nations, susan rice, to resign for initially calling the attack, quote, spontaneous and not premeditated. >> she could have said it's uncertain as to exactly how it was done, it's unsure how it was done. but to rule out terrorism saying it was not a terrorist, that was wrong. she misled the people, either if it was unintentionally or done out of ignorance. in either case, she would do the right thing and step down and resign. >> yesterday the spokesman for the national intelligence director issued a statement saying they, "revised our initial assessment to reflect new information indicating that it was a deliberate and organized terrorist attack carried out extremists." brent colburn is the national communications director for the obama campaign. brent, good saturday to you. >> thanks for having me, craig. >> "the new york times" today has a piece. the piece is called "shifting reports on libya killings may cost obama." how concerned are you at this point about the way the white house has explained the attack on the embassy? >> sure. we
president was among the world leaders in new york this week for the annual u.n. general assembly, but what many people do not know is that after surviving seven assassination attempts, he lived in exile, for two decades, near atlanta georgia. the libyan president spoke exclusively to nbc's ann curry about the trouble his country is now facing. >> you've within living in atlanta, for many years. what made you want to leave the comfort and relative safety of staying in this life and jump into the fire, as you have? >> as much a jump into the fire didn't start now, i started in 1980, when i decide to defect from the regime and called for openly, for its downfall and its toppling, and to topple it, and i didn't leave home for good in exile. i left my home with the hope to return it. being liberated now, it's my dream and my hope to return to my hope to libya, and to die there and to be buried in libya. but at one time, i was preparing myself to die in exile. >> that's very emotional for you to think about? you thought you might die, never being able to see your country again. >> to see that ta
of the european union and you can see the u.n. security council has fallen back into a kind of paralysis. you could look at the international trading environment and wonder about that. to me, and this is the answer to the question, and john would agree, the world in which the denied states is still strong but all the institutions are eroding is not a world i want to live in and therefore the united states does have an interest in trying its best to show up these institutions. >> bob is coming my way. this is great. >> a couple quick points. number one, my thesis is not that these institutions are independent. they are in fused with power and instruments of power and they are used to signal limits on power, power is never divorced from institutions. and in that regard, i argue that the u.s. has been so great on the world stage because it's tied the power to the institutions that spoke to make power more durable and expensive, but also making it more limited and less based on the indiscriminate arbitrary use of power in the traditional sense. so there is an argument about how the institutions c
in all these other areas. gregg: what white house press secretary jay carney and u.n. ambassador susan rice were telling the american people, not to mention the folks on capitol hill, was simply untrue. they were doing that for more than a week as we mentioned. now the latest offering up an explanation is general james clapper, the director of national intelligence. and here's his explanation and or excuse depending upon your point of view. we'll put it on the screen. in the immediate aftermath of the assault there was information that led us to assess that the attack began spontaneously following protests recaller that day at our embassy in cairo. do you buy that or is clapper being used trying to protech the president's reputation? what do you think? >> i think clapper has been wrong on several occasions. so there's a scramble to protect this narrative. i think the other really damaging piece here that he doesn't confront is that the state department clearly knew from ambassador stevens's cable that is the threat was growing and that ambassador stevens himself was worried about his s
